Abstract

This study aims to examine the effect of the Mother Tongue Activities Program on the reading readiness level of preschool children. The sample of the study consisted of 60 preschool children, 30 of whom were the experimental group, while the other 30 being control. "Metropolitan Readiness Test" was administered to the sample in order to find out the general readiness and reading readiness levels of the participants. The study was experimental in that it employed pre-test - training - post-test. As a result of the study, it was observed that the reading readiness and general readiness levels of the group following Mother Tongue Activities Program were higher than those of the group that did not receive such training.
